Royal Dublin Fusiliers Association Archive

The Royal Dublin Fusiliers Association was established in 1996 to commemorate all Irish men and women who volunteered, served and died in the First World War 1914-1918. The RDFA fulfils its remit by organising public exhibitions, lectures, seminars, visits and the publication of a journal, Blue Cap. In 2005, the RDFA decided to place its archive with Dublin City Library & Archive, where it is available for public consultation in the Reading Room.  The RDFA Archive is managed by Dublin City Archives.

Note: The RDFA collects personal papers of individuals who participated in the First World War. Service records for the Royal Dublin Fusiliers are held in The National Archives, Kew, London.


Dublin City Archives has generated a travelling exhibition based on the RDFA Archive, called Letters from the Great War. For further information, and to book this exhibition, e-mail cityarchives@dublincity.ie.
